In the Economist magazine, there is an article about how the Taliban are advancing closer to Islamabad. In fact two questions should be asked:
1) Why, after January 20, 2009, do the Taliban feel safe to expand from war from Warizistan and inch closer to the Capitol of Pakistan?
2) With Pakistan falling into the realm of a failed state with Nuclear weapons and devices, will the Democrats in Congress do anything to stop a new failed state from occurring?
During the 1950's, President Truman was hounded out of office for losing China and North Korea (by Democrats!), President Kennedy had problems with the USSR tightening it's grip on the Eastern Bloc with the addition of the Berlin Wall. And President Kennedy was unable to stop Fidel Castro from implementing his rule on Cuba.
My questions are the two above and this one:
3) What will President Obama do to stop the Taliban from entering Islamabad?
or, sarcastically, how's that "smart diplomacy," working out for you?
